LSU Health Shreveport COVID-19 Vaccination Schedule for September 24-25 – Bossier Press-Tribune Online

LSU Health Shreveport

The Center of Excellence for Emerging Threats (CEVT) at LSU Health Shreveport continues to offer community COVID-19 vaccinations. The FDA-authorized bivalent COVID-19 vaccines, or updated boosters, are now available and include an mRNA component of the original strain to provide an immune response that is broadly protective against COVID-19 and an mRNA component in common between the omicron variant BA.4 and BA.5 lineages to provide better protection against COVID-19 caused by the more prevalent omicron variant.

A limited supply of flu vaccine will be available at both vaccination sites. Individuals are safe to receive both flu and COVID vaccines at the same time.

Saturday, September 24, vaccinations will be administered at:

Shreveport West Center from 12PM-3PM
